Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop

IMG_2528


Well I have no idea where September went but it has and fall has arrived and with that so has this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!


This month's challenge is to create a festive wreath for the upcoming holidays.  Well although I have been creating Christmas cards all year I am not quite ready to jump on the Christmas bandwagon just yet. Although I did pick up one of those huge rolls of Christmas wrap at Costco a few weeks ago because I was getting bored of the one I bought two years ago that will likely last the rest of my life!




So my card is Fall/Autumn/Thanksgiving inspired because in only three weeks it will be Thanksgiving in Canada.

Stamps: Framed Out #9, Think Big Favorites #19, Places Please (Papertrey Ink) 
Ink: Canyon Clay, Kraft (Papertrey Ink) Soft Suede (Stampin' Up)
Dies: Banner Borders (Papertrey Ink) Stitched Matts (Lil ' Inkers)
other: Woodgrain Impressionn Plate (Papertrey Ink), burlap, foam tape

Tracey, I absolutely ADORE this beautiful card! So simple, but rich and full of texture - I love it. ;-)

Thanks so much for stopping in at my blog today. It's so nice to have a friend who knows what it's like, who can empathize with the health issues! Winter is not my season either, and Autumn is always too short. I'll enjoy it while I can. ;-)

I know I've been absent from blogland lately and missing way too much of the fun! But I hope you're doing well, and hugs to you. ;-)
